The ‘Pandemic Popularity Quadrant’ clearly depicts the rise in popularity of online platforms and services in the current scenario.
‘Quick release with quality software’ is the new mantra for this evolving market scenario.
Software testing will play an important role and be a game-changing strategy due to the shift in market dynamics. For organizations, it is imperative to move from manual testing to automation testing to stay ahead in the market.
In my previous blog, Autonomous Testing – A Game Changing Strategy, I had discussed how autonomous software assurance will play an important role in providing a competitive advantage.
However, can anything be intelligent if it is not smart? Can software assurance be intelligent if it is not done effectively?
The answer is no. Creating a smart and effective software requires two things: Agile practices for software development and smart testing tools for test automation. The smart testing tools are AI-enabled test automation tools that increase the productivity of enterprises by reducing time-to-market and the cost for testing.
“By 2024, three-quarters of large enterprises will be using AI-enabled test automation tools that support continuous testing across the different stages of the DevOps life cycle.” − Gartner November 2019 Report
